But then he can get it on PC and you can play online since it's crossplay so what did you loose?


He plays all of the fighters that he can get his hands on. Thought the Xbox One was a good option for him until Sony got SF5 and Guilty Gear. 

Thing is, X1 is still a great option but he can still choose PC AND you can still play Killer instinct. That is really the best of both worlds :).

If your friend wants premium gaming then go PC, Its not going to bother MS as long as your playing there great games. If they want simplicity then pick up the X1. X1 isn't competing with PC, its competing with other consoles. A corp doesn't care as long as you feed them. If your buying one of there products or two. Remember MS isn't one of the richest company in the world based off stupid decisions.


I've been saying it for a while now that KI lost a lot of hype on Xbox Live and the KI gamers have been complaining to Microsoft to bring KI to PC for a while now. MS hasnt been having any huge tournaments or anything, so they basically fans said since the popularity isnt growing just put it on PC. I was against that because Microsoft needs all the exclusives it can get because its fighting a marketshare battle with Sony. Every game counts. This is cool for PC gamers but when the true exclusive count will make or break the true variety. I will still get to play with my friend, but I also was trying to get him into Halo (because he likes COD) and since Sony got the DLC it just made things even worse.

I'll be playing the pS4 with him, but I was also talking to him about Halo. He mercs in COD and Guilty Gear. I already know what his Playstation game is like. Heh

If you were trying to convince your friends to get an Xbox for fighters, then you definitely were fighting a "slight" uphill battle. Fighting games were always more robust on PlayStation than Xbox. Just like shooters are more dominant on Xbox than PlayStation. PS4 has many more fighters than Xbox One does.


Actually, he was planning on getting it. I've been talking to him about it since before Guilty Gear was announced and he was like "I am cool with the pS4". I showed him some KI matches and he was saying that he'd get into it if he had more games he wanted on the Xbox. Halo 5 was announced and he was like "Cool". Microsoft opened their mouth at E3 and he was like "YES! I don't have to buy an XBox!" His reaction was pretty funny. Most of my Playstation friends were like...."It was bound to happen, in the end Microsoft doesnt have much that the PC doesn't already get, especially when they are supporting PC themselves."

You speaking for everyone? 



A lot people don't like hearing this but fuck it, I'll regurgitate it again.

Console exclusives make consoles special. They make them a reason to own the console. If you don't have exclusives you don't have luring power. Microsoft is doing terrible with exclusives so far.



I am the black sheep     "of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong."-Robert Anton Wilson

I see PC owners is the biggest winners in this exclusive war they get exclusives from both consoles.
